Hallelujah Anyhow

Merge Records


Released: 22nd Sep 2017


lp + download

Released: 22nd Sep 2017


after the sustained meditation of 2016’s ‘heart like a levee’, the follow-up bears the vitality of a spontaneous masterclass in the mould of bob dylan and tom petty.

a rock classicist by nature, ‘hallelujah anyhow’ has the easy quality of a songwriter and a band right in the sweet spot of creation and performance. this is an album rooted down to its bleeding soul in the American south, and represents something-of-a career highlight for these magic brethren of song. “…exquisitely detailed, as every listen reveals further nuance beneath the swagger” 9/10 – uncut, “this material not only references the past masters of American music but also deserves to be recognised as a valid part of that same lineage.” 8.5/10 – line of best fit
